About the event

In 2022, World Book Day is celebrating its 25th anniversary – with the message for all children ‘you are a reader‘! It will be filled with lots of exciting, celebratory ways to promote reading for pleasure on World Book Day, and all-year round.

Dressing up Day Thursday 3rd March

We would love to see the children get involved and dress up as their favourite book character for the whole day, some classes may have chosen a class theme. Please do not go to any expense for this outfit. As we are not asking for a voluntary donation this year, we would encourage you to consider the ‘Book Exchange’ as an alternative.

Book Exchange

All children are invited to bring in a book (or books) from Monday 28th February that they would like to donate to our WHJS book exchange. The books should be suitable for someone else of a similar age to select. There will be opportunities in the week for all children to select a book to take home that other children have brought in to the Book Exchange.

World Book Day Party

The theme of this year’s World Book Day is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary. All classes will hold a party to celebrate during the day. Teachers are eagerly planning party games (with a reading theme!) to play with their classes. Children will also spend some time earlier in the week creating decorations for their classroom.
